ICAI's review on International Climate Finance: UK aid for halting deforestation and preventing irreversible biodiversity loss

Inquiry

We have now published the Report for this inquiry.

The inquiry into UK foreign aid programmes aimed at halting deforestation and preventing biodiversity loss, much of it caused by climate change, has recommended:· greater emphasis on work aimed at helping women and indigenous people;· a re-think of the large amounts of money spent on multilateral, internationally-administered programmes (as opposed to direct UK funding of projects); and· improved co-ordination between different UK government departments carrying out the work.
